It’s often said that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. Experts agree. A good breakfast provides us with energy and nutrients needed to fuel our day. It makes us more focused and productive, and even helps prevent mid-morning slump. So, before you tackle your day at the office, school or home, make sure you’ve had a good breakfast. For those on the go, check out these tips to help you eat a quick yet healthy breakfast:
- Plan your breakfast and decide what you’re going to eat. Buy fruits like bananas, apples and vegetables likes carrots. Also low-fat yoghurt, bread and grain (cereals, muffins and toasts), and nuts.
- Wake up 15 minutes earlier and whip up an omelette. Chop your veggies ahead of time, such as the night before, and store them in the refrigerator.
- Drink a glass of orange juice or milk along with your morning cup of coffee.
- Make a fruit smoothie by blending a cup of your favourite fruits, a cup of crushed ice and a cup of yoghurt for a healthy grab-and-go breakfast.
- Don’t skip breakfast or you’ll be feeling physically and mentally drained throughout the day. Aside from giving you energy and high performance, breakfast is also linked to weight control. You won’t be hungrier than usual and you can stave off cravings, especially when there’s a box of sugar-filled donuts right in front of you.
- Take vitamins and health supplements with your breakfast. Having supplements with food improves mineral absorption—plus it reduces the chance of an upset stomach.
With a good and hearty breakfast, plus daily intake of food supplements, you’ll surely be off to a great start!
